Plugin for zest.releaser to allow uploading the created egg via SCP to configurable destinations.

Project description

This package provides a plugin for zest.releaser that offers to upload the released egg via SCP, SFTP or HTTP(S) PUT (WebDAV) to a custom location (instead of or in addition to PyPI).

To use, add a section to your ~/.pypirc like the following:

gocept = scp://
gocept.special =
gocept.sftp = s

If the name of the package being released starts with one of the keys in that section (longest match wins, case insensitive), you will be prompted whether to upload the egg (that was created by zest.releaser by checking out the tag) to the given server.

Options for HTTP(S) PUT (WebDAV)

HTTP(S) PUT (WebDAV) is implemented using curl to add options to curl, e. g. to disable certificate checks, add the options in front of the URL like this:

gocept.special = --insecure

Uploading Documentation

In addition to uploading the egg, the plugin also offers to upload generated documentation.

To use this functionality, create a ~/.zestreleaserrc that contains something like the following:

gocept =

If the name of the package being released starts with one of the keys in that section, the plugin will run ./bin/doc to generate the documentation and then prompt to upload the contents of ./build/doc. The upload destination is assembled from the configured prefix, the package name and version. In the example, the upload location would be /var/www/doc/


The source code is available in the Mercurial repository at
